When we say, “I want to fulfill my purpose,” we often mean, I want to figure out what my purpose really is, and then act on it.
This implies that you don’t know what it is already, or that you don’t yet have a purpose.
Let me just make this really simple for you: Your purpose is to return to live with God someday. That’s it. That’s all. Are you doing what is necessary?
Awesome. Now what?
If you look up “purpose” in the topical guide, the first thing is says is “See also, Desire.” It also lists “Will” as an alternative to look into.
This makes me think that our purpose is just our desire, aka, our will.
Then if you check out all the scripture references below Purpose in the topical guide, desire can be replaced for each one, and it is enlightening:
Every desire is established by council.
A time to every desire under the heaven
This is the will that is desired upon the whole earth.

I have heard it said by my coaching mentors, there are only two reasons why people hire a life coach:
- Because they know what they want (their purpose), but they need help doing it, or
- Because they don’t know what they want. (their purpose)
I love that I get to help people discover and live out their purposes, their true desires.
And I love that it always starts with my faith.
